‘He Has option’ Mauricio Pochettino has now changed his mind about allowing £14m Chelsea man to leave this summer
Reports indicate that Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has reversed his decision regarding Angelo Gabriel’s potential loan move this summer. According to Di Marzio, Pochettino’s change of heart comes after observing the young player’s performances during the pre-season.
Angelo Gabriel joined Chelsea for approximately £14 million, reflecting the club’s ongoing efforts to recruit promising talents. Initially, there were expectations that Pochettino would send the Brazilian forward on loan for the upcoming season to ensure he gains regular first-team experience.
However, recent reports suggest that Pochettino has reconsidered his stance and now envisions Angelo Gabriel as part of his plans for the upcoming season. This decision could impact Chelsea’s ongoing transfer activities, particularly regarding their pursuit of additional attacking options.
Chelsea has been linked with moves for players like Michael Olise and Mohammed Kudus to strengthen their attacking lineup. While competition for these players is fierce, Chelsea’s newfound commitment to retaining Angelo Gabriel might influence their transfer strategy moving forward.
Roy Hodgson’s remarks about Crystal Palace facing challenges to keep hold of Michael Olise may further fuel Chelsea’s interest in securing his signature. As the transfer window progresses, it will be interesting to see how Chelsea’s plans evolve in light of Pochettino’s decision regarding Angelo Gabriel.
